Brownsburg's buzzer-beater stuns Ben Davis

BROWNSBURG — Coming into Saturday’s game both the Ben Davis and Brownsburg boys’ basketball teams had played conference foes the night before with different results.

Brownsburg won a hard-fought game over Hoosier Crossroads Conference and county rival Avon. Ben Davis lost a tough game to Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference and Eastside foe, Warren Central.

Winning back-to-back games under circumstances like that is tough and Brownsburg showed great character and strength in coming up with a last-second 47-45 victory over the visiting Giants.

“I thought our players made some plays late to finish the game off,” Brownsburg coach Steve Lynch said. “Both teams had tough, emotional games last night. To come back and put a lot of energy and emotion into this game … when the challenge is issued they’ve really stepped up as a group.”

After trailing 2-0 to start, Brownsburg led until the final seconds of the third quarter when Ben Davis’ Ian Deiters hit a shot at the buzzer, giving the Giants a 32-30 lead.

Timely shots were hit by both teams all night, but Brownsburg’s K.J. Walton and Trevor Lucas really shined through when needed.

“Trevor has really worked hard all year … working on his game in the morning and at night in the gym,” Lynch said. “K.J. will obviously get a lot of looks for us throughout the game and he did a nice job picking his spots when and where he attacked.”

Trailing 36-32 in the fourth, Walton knocked down a trey and a possession later, so did Lucas, pulling Brownsburg even at 38-38 midway through the third.

Darrian Ringo, who led Brownsburg in fourth-quarter scoring, put the Bulldogs up 40-38 after a Lucas steal and outlet pass.

Down 43-40, Ringo drove the left baseline and hit while drawing the foul. After the free throw, the game was square at 43.
